as senate republicans back in washington threatened to derail and deny his nomination of chuck hagel. we're looking live at the senate where moments from now they're going to take a vote that's likely to delay the confirmation of a much-needed secretary of defense for this country, a country, by the way, that's still at war, and we'll bring you that live. but first, we take you on an exclusive tour of wayne lapierre's new york. that's right. this is how the nra's chief executive describes the city of new york today in an opinion piece published on the daily caller beb site. after hurricane sandy, he writes, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. looters ran wild in south brooklyn, and if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark or you might not get home at all. yes. while nobody in this city recognizes that bogus, racist, and entirely mythical description of new york during the hurricane, mr. lapierre says ordinary americans are now at the mercy of everything from marauding latino gangs to urban thugs and drug d
chuck hagel's nomination. let's listen to senator reid reacting to the republicans holding up hagel's nomination. >> but it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense. for the sake of our national security, it's time to put aside this political theater. and that's what it is. it's tragic that they've decided to filibuster this qualified nominee. it is really unfortunate. >> can you give us the status of this whole thing and explain where we are in the process? >> as we know, the republicans did not allow a vote to happen. they invoke cloture which means it's on hold. what's happened now is the congress on a break for a week, chuck hagel's got to wait around. and there's a concern, i think, at the white house and other areas that something could come up. that's what people are looking for. the white house is expressing confidence. president obama said he's confident this will happen. and other administration officials have put the word out that they are confident. but whether it happens or not after congress gets bac
, denis mcdonough, is here. then -- >> the debate time for senator hagel is not yet over. >> hagel on hold and -- >> straight out. >> was this really a big deal? >> don't worry, senator rubio, nobody noticed that you gave a speech. [ laughter ] >> our powerhouse roundtable takes on all the week's politics. george will, democratic congressman joaquin castro, former speaker of the house newt gingrich, ruth marcus from "the washington post" and former romney adviser, stuart stevens. >> hello again. george is off today. it's great to have you with us. in a "this week" exclusive congressman paul ryan is standing by to join us live, but first a major political story breaking overnight. a new report from "usa today" with what the paper says is a draft of the white house immigration proposal. according to the report, the plan includes allowing undocumented immigrants to apply for legal status with a pathway to citizenship after eight years. it also expands e-verify and border security. joining us now to talk about this is the new white house chief of staff, denis mcdonough. thank you for joining u
along party lines to move chuck hagel's defense secretary nomination to the full senator. the senator combat veteran and wildly successful businessman will need 60 votes to overcome a filibuster from his own party. here is leader mitch mcconnell mcconnell's logic. >> sometimes you want to kill a nomination. there are a number of members of the committee who feel that the quest for information has not yet been met. >> michael: is that guy ever ever smiled? he said he has not disclosed more of his income. harry reid said he's planning to build a vote for hagel later on this week. in other nominations reid seems to be playing air traffic controller. >> we need to get to brennan. we have jack lew. we have cordray and getting that done. >> michael: those are read anything but smooth sailing. we have l. joy williams and joe williams, in case you're wondering they're not related. i thank both williamss for being here. >> so far as we know. >> michael: we got to bond this right away guys. we got to brand it right away. joe, i want to talk to you about chuck hagel main republican senator repor
>>> let me finish tonight with the stalking of senator hagel. those who don't want this man as pentagon chief will stop at nothing. they're out there beating the bushes right now for anything that will slow the process of his confirmation, anything that will give them more time to find something they can build enough on to bring the man down. question. who are they trying to bring down? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term? listen to those attacking senator hagel, and you hear the yelps of pain this motley crew of neocons and right-wingers from the sun belt feel even though from the american people's choice of last november. what they hate, despise really, is the fact now in the history books that the american people in great numbers reject their war-like jingoistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is not with obama's choice for a cabinet appointment. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants
, two other things. >> yeah. >> chuck hagel, the nomination delayed, also cia director looks like he'll be delayed. is this a threat to security? >> it's of grave concern. if you look at chuck hagel, decorated war hero, republican senator, somebody who over the course of the last many years either as a republican senator or as the chairman of the president's intelligence advisory board i've worked with very closely, this guy has one thing in mind, how do we protect the country? >> is there a danger of this being delayed? >> between john brennan, cia director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense, we want to make sure that we have our -- those guys sitting in the chairs working because i don't want there to have been something missed because of this hangup here in washington. >> okay, and very quickly, john boehner had a very -- seemed like a harsh comment directed toward the president saying that "i don't think he has the guts to cut or to deal with the entitlement problem. he doesn't have the courage to take on the liberal side of his own party." what do you say to speak her of th

. the senate will need 60 votes to end a filibuster on defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. republican senator james inhofe of oklahoma is leading the charge to block hagel. harry reid scheduled the vote to end the filibuster for friday. >> this is the first time in the history of our country that a presidential nominee for secretary of defense has been filibustered. what a shame. >> howard, is hagel, is the nomination in trouble? >> a little bit. i think in the end it will get through. but i think this a way, chuck hagel has kind of become the pinata for republicans, because he is within reach. president obama is not. president obama is on the right side politically on most of these political issues. the republicans can't touch him, and they know it. the only person they can whack right now is chuck hagel. i mean, chuck hagel is a perfectly acceptable defense secretary. and privately, most republicans would say the same thing. but for a whole host of reasons, the only person that the republican right can go after right now is hagel, and they're going to do it. >> yeah. >> and i think
to filibuster hagel, they're sure as hell not going to let the minimum wage go to $9 an hour. they're against workers. they've always been against workers. you can do the math. you can play with the years and the trends and everything else. worker productivity in this country is absolutely awesome. but you know what? we just have a hard time paying people. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. tonight's question. what is more important to the republican party? text a for corporate profits. text b for people. here's the number. 67622. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com and leave a comment. we encourage you to do that. we'll bring you the results later on in the program. now, joining me tonight for the first news interview. james carville, democratic strategy exist political consultant and author of the book "it's the middle class, stupid." you know what? the word "stupid" works for you because you back in the early '90s, you were saying it's the economy, stupid. >> right. >> james-g to have you on the program. glad to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here and
considering the nomination of chuck hagel for more than an hour, and all against a backdrop of republican opposition. >> with respect to chuck hagel and brennan, defense and cia just in the last week, their performance in front of the committees that have to confirm them has been pretty poor. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. >> and so as the president prepares to address the nation focusing on flash points overseas and major challenges at home from gun violence to unemployment and immigration, attention also falls upon whether the republican party will spend the next four years doing exactly what it has done for the last four, opposing and obstructing everything that this president has sought to achieve. for more now let's go right to nbc's kristin welker who is live for us at the white house. good afternoon. what's the white house reaction been to word that republican senators may try to hold up the nomination of chuck hagel? >> reporter: well, marti
hagel the department is controlled by the israeli foreign military. and if the second statement were true said the secretary of state's office is it controlled by the israeli foreign military, and the israelis-u.s. relationship way out of the mainstream. if he were to accuse the department of state of being basically subserviant to the nation of israel that would be, that would be enough to scuttle this nomination. >> new questions about transparency within the obama administration as the white house press corps expressing frustration after being barred from the president's weekend golf trip to florida. >> the drive-by fit to be tied. and ed henry the head of the white house correspondent's association has logged an official complaint with the white house claiming lack of transparency. >> let me say it as simply as i can, transparency and the rule of low will be the touchstones of this presidency. >> do you think it's that big a deal. do you think that a picture with obama and tiger woods, it would hurt him? i don't either. who are we talking about, he's the celebrity of the united s
